    One to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.

    Fourteen to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.

    Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

    Two to remark that the older model lightbulbs were better made and lasted longer.

    Six to post a video of someone changing a lightbulb from YouTube.

    One to have accumulated around 6,000 posts, 5,987 of which read "That's what she said!"

    Nine to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

    Three to correct spelling/grammar errors.

    Four to say that just because some brands of lightbulbs have an extra safety system designed to prevent breakage when dropped, they're just junk.

    Six to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb".

    Another six to condemn those six as stupid.

    Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry and give the correct spelling.

    Nineteen to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb (or light bulb) forum.

    Eleven to defend the posting to the group saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group.

    Six to obsess about their post count, and to think that since they have more posts than anyone else they're smarter.

    One to somehow confuse Thomas Edison, inventer of the lightbulb, with God.

    Thirty six to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty.

    Two to say that that brand flickers too much, and that their brand is more reliable.

    One to get offended and whine about how they love their lightbulb, so everyone else should just leave it alone.

    Ten to offer home lightbulbsmithing advice that's probably destined to get someone electrocuted.

    Seven to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

    Four to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL.

    One to start their statement with "Not to hijack this thread or anything, but...." and then immediately and shamelessly hijack the thread.

    Three to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

    Ten to constantly debate whether lightbulbs that come in packs of 7 or packs of 8 are more reliable.

    Wun membr 2 misspel evre worde, uv thare poste and, two putt punkshuation inall tha rong, plases.

    Two to say that if it were their lightbulb they'd modify it, reassuring the owner that it only "takes twenty minutes at the kitchen counter", selectively leaving out the fact that it also takes $250.

    Thirteen to multi-quote all posts in their entirety including all headers, pictures and signatures, and add "Me too", "+1" or "".

    One to complain about how the Liberals are trying to take their lightbulbs away.

    Eight to say that anyone that doesn't use a 45 watt bulb is an idiot.

    Three to claim that the 9 watts are better because more come in a single package.

    Two to think up a clever joke that involves Rosie O'Donnell choking on a "bad clam" or a "fish taco".

    Five to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

    Six to say that the lightbulb's finish is going to wear off unless the owner gets it hard-chromed.

    Four to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

    Thirteen to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting dumb questions about light bulbs."

    Three to tell a funny story about their cat and a light bulb.

    One to claim that their preferred maker of lightbulbs made them first, and to write off custom made lightbulbs costing three to five times as much as "just copies".

    Ten to say that this lightbub company uses inferior parts, and to claim their lightbulbs are better.


    One group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now with something unrelated and start it all over again....
